I think with a 5 gallon I would do just the adf with the betta, adding the rasboras would probably be too much. If you really want them look at espei rasboras, they look mostly the same but are smaller.

As for the corys, they prefer their own kind but it's not a problem to mix and match. If you can't get pandas and want to go with a different kind you can get five of what you can get and they will be good together, you don't have to wait until after the panda dies.

Corys are excellent and thumbs up -- I've done both rainbow shark and tiger barbs in with betta's and have also heard of others who have. It is really a total hit and miss depending on the betta and the other fish. Though my experience with tiger barbs is not at all favorable. Rainbow shark though? He did great with my betta after one initial scuffle.

It's whatever you like as far as corys go. They all get along, so you can get anything you like. Just so you know if you get albinos there is a chance they are peppered. Albino corys are either bronze or peppered.

I have a giant that lives with harliquin rasboras brone cories, albino cories, pygmy cories, otts, gold barbs,platys,mollys and a albino bristlenose pleco, and they all get along, for the first few weeks hendrix the giant purple betta showed all those fish who the boss is (chasing them all around) since then it is peaceful he swims aorund they get out of his way lol, the worst fish I have had in a community tank was guppies, they where nippy and swarmed the other fish and would nto leave them alone....

Agreed, and correct about the albinos.

In my experience keeping a few small schools of Corys in a large tank, the species did not intermingle like they appear to do in smaller tanks.
